This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Here are some of the books my G13 read by grnd
in her mother/daughter book group:
The Giver by Lois Lowry
Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool
A Mango Shaped Space by Wendy Mass
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead
Faith, Hope and Ivy June by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
As far as classics go, I know they also read Little Women recently (not many liked it) and The Hobbit (which most did enjoy). I think they all particularly liked The Giver.
They have not read To Kill a Mockingbird, as they have all read it for school (some multiple times. But that would be first on my list.
